The Blue Lagoon has carbon neutralized its business since the year 2019 by planting trees and growing algae. The company’s carbon emission accounting and plastic footprint are also monitored, which enables the Blue Lagoon to make operational improvements and reduce the company’s impact on the environment.
In an announcement by the Confederation of Icelandic Enterprise, it is stated that the world-famous spa has put an environmental management system to use, and completed the certification process for quality, environment and safety management. It has also received the Blue Flag, a world-renowned ecolabel, in 2013.
